they are going to be able to get. the opportunity right now would be to call senator marco rubio in florida. if you look at their two proposals, they are not that far apart. if you wanted to solve this problem for the purpose of economic growth, more border security and to do what president obama wants, which i don't think is not -- he is not the only one who wants to provide to provide assurance younger people by parents if they were brought here illegally. i think if they were to bring in marco rubio they would get something nonpartisan done. other aren't that budget, i don't think there is a lot through this congress. they haven't passed a new budget in four years. a lot of new faces in washington as well especially on the senate side. >> shepard: sure. the polls suggest that the american people have moved a lot on gun control, at least since the tragedy at newtown. i'm wondering if you think there is any room for gun control legislation? be it smaller number of ammunition in magazines or the gun show loophole or anything that's possible? >> i thought that before president obama did the

a talk that maybe immigration reform is a place there could be common ground. you heard marco rubio in the senate, paul ripe in the house, and maybe we can have like george w. bush, a republin vision that had legal status and maybe even citizenship for those in this country illegally, ballpark number about 10 million. would a tea party member like you support that? in the past, you've called that amnesty. >> that would be real hard for me, and i defined amnesty, and not many have because they want the broader definition when it's convenient. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. if that's what this bill does, it would fit the definition of amnesty. >> could your speaker survive if he allowed that bill to come to the floor of the house of representatives? >> i think we'd want to look at the language on that. john boehner's tone and his body language and everything i heard him say at the retreat in williamsburg, he and our leadership team was all about how we pull our conference together and work together. i don't thi

potential for a compromise bill being fashioned in the u.s. senate. marco rubio who -- who's saying some things similar to what democrats are saying on immigration reform. you have people like john mccain who has a history of supporting immigration reform. so you can see some potential for a compromise between the senate and the white house. and then gets passed to the house where the politics are much trickier because it's controlled by republicans. but i think that's an area where, you know, if you had to -- if you were optimistic about one issue that got solved this year on the president's agenda, then immigration would be at the top of the list. not easy, but there's potential for compromise. >> ryan, last chance -- a little something for the viewers, a little sing, gospel? >> no. believe me, you don't want that. >> all right. another day, another time. thank you. nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >>> now that lance armstrong has admitted to cheating, a lot of people want their money back. if they're successful, guess what, he might be left with nothing. overmany discounts to thin
